Residents dispose of unwanted drugs at sheriff’s collection at Walmart

A steady stream of residents took advantage of the the prescription drug take back day Saturday at the Walmart at Buffalo Ridge Plaza in The Villages.

Bill Westwood who lives in the Village of Fenney drove all the way to the store Buffalo Ridge Plaza to take advantage of the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office drug disposal day.

He thanked Deputy Henshaw who took the bag of prescription drugs from Westwood. Westwood said that the service was “terrific” and “this was a better way to dispose of the drugs than flushing them down the toilet.”
